And as much as I'd like to move on and towel snap some new right-wing nad, there's just too much crunchy, whackjob goodness going down over at Kate's Wingnut Body Shop and Tattoo Parlor to let it go unobserved. Or unremarked upon.
First, let the record show that even the whackjobbier of Canada's nutbars are none too happy with Kate's desecration of what should be off limits on Remembrance Day. Why, here's Werner Patels' youthful ward and boy toy himself, Patrick Ross:
Kate, I strongly disapprove of what you've written here. To put it mildly.
Was that editorial cartoon in The Star over the line? Clearly. But so was this.
And when Patrick Ross thinks you've done something tasteless, well, that's like Steve Janke telling you you're spending too much time obsessing over meaningless trivialities. I mean, at that point, you just know you've gone a bridge too far. But let's not stop there.
Not surprisingly, if you dare to criticize the Virgin Mother of Delisle, Saskatchewan, well, you are obviously a liberal, leftard moonbat ... or whatever expression the cool kids are using these days:
I assume I've been lumped in with the "left" for daring to criticize Saint Kate.
For the record, I'm definitely conservative politically and economically. I've voted that way since I was able to vote and I've NEVER missed voting in an election.
I'm simply offended by anyone show such blatant disrespect for our veteran and serving military, doubly offended by the "well, they did it first" kindergarten style justification offered by you, Kate, and triply offended by the infantile responses by the so-called "Conservative" fan-boyz.

I believe we can safely conclude that commenter "djb" is now persona non grata at Kate's Place. And then there's "Joanne" and her interpretation of the Ann Coulter defense:
It's funny how only the Left can have a sense of humour when it comes to them digging at the Conservatives ...
Ah ... it was all a joke, which would, naturally, come as a surprise to the vast majority of the other commenters, who seemed quite sure it wasn't a joke, but what the fuck do they know, right, Joanne?
(By the way, Joanne, just FYI, it's only the Left that does have a sense of humour. Whenever someone on the Right tries to be funny, well, the results generally speak for themselves. I'm just sayin'.)
Then there's commenter "Rick," who's all about freedom of speech, except not for everyone, if you know what I mean:
The Star is out of control. Freedom of Speech is something that our forefathers fought and died for so it is not free. Secondly, Free Speech does not mean you go about ranting and raving and telling untruths.
Yes, Rick ... that's just what we all needed as a reality check -- a member of Canada's right-wing Wank-o-sphere, telling us that "ranting and raving and telling untruths" is a bad thing. God only hopes the irony isn't lost on a few people over there.
But here's the best, the absolutely best, part of the whole sorry spectacle, from none other than Canada's creepiest, right-wing, online stalker:
"sanctimonious perry whines... Absolutely unbelievable. Beyond the bounds of taste, and saskboy sucks it up... cancel me too..."
did either have anything to say about their fellow-progressive "canadian cynic" telling the mother of a dead canadian soldier to "get f@cked"?
what's that you hear?
the sound of supremely skewed socialist silence.

This is, apparently, the new right-wing "Canadian Cynic" defense: "Well, sure, I wrote something insulting, offensive, and despicable. But ... but ... but ... Canadian Cynic!"
Yes, Neo, you just sit there in your private bloggy cesspool and excuse the never-ending stream of dumbassitude coming from your neo-con buddies because, months ago, I wrote something rude. Poor baby. Did I hurt your widdle feelings?
You know, it's purely a mystery how Neo and the rest of his pro-war Blogging Tory colleagues are always so teeth-clenchingly, vein-poppingly ready for combat and some serious Muslim ass-kicking, yet they just can't keep from whining and snivelling over something someone wrote months ago that they can't seem to get over.
Yes, Neo, you and the rest of your BT girly-men are just the folks we want to be stuck in a foxhole with when the shells are zipping around overhead:
Sarge: "All right, men, let's show them just what we Canadians are made of? WHO'S WITH ME?!"
Neo: "Did you hear the names they were calling us? That's just ... just ... mean. You all go on without me. My feelings are hurt. *Sniff*."
I apologize, Neo -- the next time I feel like ripping someone a new orifice, I'll try to keep your delicate sensibilities in mind. Now why don't you go honour Canada's military by putting on a red shirt or something? It's apparently all you're good for.
P.S. I'm assuming that Kate is still so absolutely terrified of me that she continues to block any of my referrals to her site, is that right? Profiles in courage, the lot of them.
By the way, that was irony. In case you missed it.
